About WaterWitch Yachts

WaterWitch Yachts is the brainchild of Jay Cross, a successful International 14 designer and sailor in the 1980ís who pioneered the 14ís switch to asymmetric spinnakers. Cross was also a 3 time Olympic 470 crew on the 1976, 1980 and 1984 Canadian Olympic Team. Professionally, Jay is a real estate developer in New York City and was previously President of the National Football League New York Jets.

Looking to create an elegant, fast high performance family daysailor/racer, Cross approached fellow sailing friends Pieter Taselaar and John Monsky to create WaterWitch, the yacht, and from there created WaterWitch Yachts LLC.

Pieter Taselaar is President and founder of Reach investments, a successful Europeon hedge fund in Westchester, NY, and a former Melges 32 World Champion.

John Monsky is General Counsel and Partner of Oakhill Investments, a large and successful private equity fund founded by Robert Bass of Texas and based in New York City.
